Five-striped Sparrow (Amphispiza quinquestriata)

The Five-striped Sparrow (Amphispiza quinquestriata) is one of the New World Sparrow, found in southernmost Arizona and northern Mexico. You can clearly see from my photo where it gets it’s name from! I took this photo in Arizona.

    Lovely photo. The stripe above the eye kind of makes him look like an angry little bird. Very cute!
